Not too shabby
I've been listening/downloading shows in chronological order from '70 on, sometimes commenting, most of the times not, but always reading everyone's comments and even more importantly LISTENING. People, the reason the archive exists is because of the music, obviously, not the recording or the hiss and all the rest. The music will always transcend and transmit through no matter the recording. I read a comment about the aid section of this recording as being unlistenable. Dude, shut your front and rear doors, these auds are not so bad, we all know the tunes, focus on the playing. I've heard far worse auds out there. I have no doubt about the fact that if this show were completely SBD, someone would mention this may be the best Bertha or Bird Song. I'll say this for this show, Jerry's singing was so emotionally inflected, he was really putting himself into his vocals. I think that may be due to the fact that the previous show in HWood David Crosby came out and sang for the last seven or eight songs. Could be Jerry took some pointers from Croz. I read a comment from several nights in the future from this one in NH I think it's 9/23 or 24 but they said that show was the 1st Big River ever. Well even though it's in an Aud format I think this Big River pre-dates that one, it seems as if they were working out the song structure around the rhythms. Additionally I think this is the first Big Rairoad Blues since Europe and no one has mentioned Don't Ease Me In, when was the last time they played that prior to this night. Additionally I think this was the 1st Brokedown Palace since Europe (I could be wrong about that). So this show has something going for itself historically, plus it's September 1972, come on, this is filet mignon for your ears people.
One of these day the freds will learn. This is a COMPOSITE. That means BOTH Soundboard & Audience recording make up this show. Its a subpar AUD recording at best. Did either of you listen to Stella Blue?? Evidently not.
